Teach the scientific method in a compelling way this year! Mystery box activity illustrates the scientific method in an interactive way. Students gather data, make predictions, and test them in this lesson.
This purchase includes 22 PowerPoint slides with images that introduce the scientific method and guide students through the inquiry based activity to illustrate it. Student notes handout guides student focus during the PowerPoint presentation. Example experiments are included for students to practice identifying parts of an experiment (independent variable, dependent variable, control group, constants, etc.). There is also a teacher notes page to help the teacher prepare for the lesson and facilitate the mystery box activity.
Students love testing their predictions at the end of the experiment, and it's a great real-life application of the scientific method.
